Several doctors appointed new at the hospital, will take us time to streamline things: Deputy MS
Handwara, Apr 16 (GNS): Coming in a complete disdain to service manuals, the general physician ‘on call’ circumvented patients, who had been waiting for him for hours altogether at District Hospital Handwara on Sunday evening.
A patient called GNS to express his resentment over the absence of doctor on call at the district hospital. “We have been waiting here for several hours now for the arrival of the doctor on call, but there has been no whiff for anyone where he has gone”, said a local attending his wife.
“After completing the required tests for several hours while observing fast, I had to take her to the physician but was asked to wait for his arrival”, he said. “After waiting for hours altogether, we even tried to reach the doctors through mobile call, but the said doctor, a general physician, first asked us to wait for some time and then didn’t take any calls”, the attendant claimed.
“On sensing his adamant attitude, I had to take my wife , who is two month pregnant, back to home without getting to consult the doctor”, he said.
“I was accompanied by several other patients and their attendants at the hospital”, he further said.
When contacted, Deputy Medical Superintendent District Hospital Handwara told GNS that there has been appointment of several new doctors at the hospital. “It will take us time to streamline the things”, he said. (GNS)
